The grapes for this wine come from terraces at the height of the Aude Valley, in the foothills of the Pyrenees. Clay and limestone soils. Cooler climate, milder temperatures and rainfalls. 10-year-old vines were pruned using the "cordon de Royat" (trellised) and "Guyot" (trellised) methods. Relatively low yields (50 hl/ha).
Cold pre-fermentation maceration (about a week). One week's fermentation at controlled temperatures. 25% of the final blend is aged in oak barrels for 6 to 9 months.
Food Pairing: Serve at 17°C with charcuteries, white meat, chicken with a cream sauce and light cheeses.
